“The creative is the place where no one else has ever been.
You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness
of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful.
What you’ll discover is yourself.”
— Alan Alda

Creativity is related to our essential life force energy. When our creativity gets shut down or is stuck in some way, it can affect many things. Our energy can feel depleted, our sexuality can be diminished, our ability to envision and manifest what we want in the world can be compromised. Depression is often a fallout of creative blocks.

Art, as a personal process, can be like journaling — helping to deepen our knowing of who we are, accessing different aspects of our S(s)elf that want to be seen and expressed. Visual art therapy uses symbols (our first and most primal language), relationships, color and texture to discover and express ourselves in ways that words cannot. Singing, poetry, and story can facilitate a profound way to experience our deeper selves and make meaning, change perspective, and give voice to our lives. Your ability to tap into your creative flow is essential for feeling connected and expressing yourself fully.

“Art doesn’t have to be pretty. It has to be meaningful.”
– Duane Hanson
